billsimmon 28 Jul 2011 | : episodes

Adjusted Summer Schedule & Special Announcement

billsimmon 02 Jul 2011 | : housekeeping

We at PSFR hope you’re all enjoying the summer weather. We’re making a slight adjustment to our summer schedule of new shows and we have an exciting announcement!

First, we’re shifting our summer every-other-week show schedule by a week, meaning we WILL NOT be doing a new live show tomorrow, July 3, but we will back next week (July 10) with a new show. Then we’ll continue every other week until Labor Day. So there will be fresh episodes of PSFR streaming LIVE on the following dates:

JULY 10, 24

AUGUST 7, 21

Then beginning September 4, we will return to a weekly schedule.

And don’t miss our show next week, July 10! It’s our special 150th episode and it will feature friend-of-the-show, blogger and professional smarty-pants, Gerry Canavan IN THE STUDIO with us for the whole show.

Now get outside, you nerds!
